I just stepped into the shack. 40m sounds about like it has the past month or so. But I have been able to complete a call despite condx. I'm hoping for the  same tonite. I will tune up in a minute or 2 and start calling as soon as the hour changes.

In just a few minutes I will start calling CQ on 40m about 7071.4 - 7071.6 in hopes of completing my quest for logging at least 1 PSK31 each day of 2018. I might also call on 80m and/or 20m depending on conditions. Please answer if you hear/see me. I will also be monitoring email.

Guys
I have 42 unique PSK31 contacts with Mexican stations and over 60 Qs, if dupes are counted, since 2008. Doing it will take a lot of BIC (butt in chair) but with determination and a bit of luck it can be done.

As a matter of fact Jerry, there are!  I have 21 distinct Mexican PSK31 stations in my log.  Now granted, that goes from 2009 thru 2018, so it might be a challenge!  But maybe having it as a DX Special will cause some more interest from Mexican Hams!

Not even a hint of a trace here. Thanks for trying. Welcome to the club and thanks for the call on the 27th.
Jim
Thanks again for filling slot 365. It's been a long year. I also want to thank everyone who answered my call this year. I absolutely could not have done without each and everyone of you.
PSKers in general and 070ers in particular are the most helpful and generous Hams on the bands.
Happy New Year and 73

The year is coming to a close and with it comes changes in DX Special Endorsements.

2018 DX Special Endorsements for Germany, Alaska, and Puerto Rico close at 2359 UTC December 31, 2018, but you have until January 31, 2019 to post your log to qualify for these endorsements. 

2019 DX Special Endorsements open at 0000 UTC January 1, 2019.  The three new entities will be Italy, Hawaii, and Mexico.  To qualify for the endorsement, work 20 different stations during the calendar year (PSK31 mode only) that are operating from within the specified entity.  Progress is automatically tracked by the Awards Progress Checker.

Hawaii and Mexico should provide opportunities for stations in western North and South America, Japan and the Pacific.  Italy provides good opportunity for European stations, the Middle East, and Africa.  As for eastern and mid-west North America - don't they always have it easy???  Maybe the sun will favor us with better propagation in 2019....but it is still early for Solar Cycle 25.  Hope springs eternal!

"Happy New Year!" to all and hope to see you on the waterfall for PSK Fest!  It begins January 5, 2019 at 0000 UTC.
